Question about Mitsubishi Mr. Slim MXZ30TN Air Conditioner
If the compressor is locked up it would cost less to replace the complete unit. Prices for complete units average around $500.00.
The compressor alone sells for over $300.00 Then there are accessories such as filter drier and refrigerant and capacitor plus about 2 hours labor from a service technician. Repair cost would exceed replacement cost.
The existing compressor controls can be by-passed for test purposes to verify a compressor lock up. Ask the technician if he verified by using a power cord directly to the compressor and capacitor.
I am not sure what you mean by "controller".switches,thermostat,circuit board??
If it is a part he is talking about and not a bad compressor you would spend up to $250.00 for parts and labor.
The rule of thumb is to spend up to 50% in repairs versus replacement cost.
Thank you for using FIXYA.

If the air compressor is locked up - you "could" get it replaced.. However - if you do that - the other components could fail eventually.. Also depends on the age of the unit.. It might just as well be best to replace the hole unit.. If it is an older unit - you might consider replacing the hole unit.. Then you will have a warranty also..
Did you have a pro test the components ?
Did they try a "hard start kit" to maybe jump start the compressor ?
Good luck ;o)
